This Saturday, I shall be in London, at the gathering in Hyde Park protesting The Pope's official state Visit to these islands, before marching on Downing Street.

And I'll be taking this.


Wish me luck.

You can read about everything that happened at Protest The Pope on my new blog.

A proper update in the morning (with photos)

but for now y'all just have to content yourselves with this.



One highlight to mention (apart from being told off by two nuns on The Tube) is that the sign a friend designed, that I bore aloft can be seen in brief glimpses in this BBC news report.

Hope they arrest the Pope. Would be so awesome.

I just thought of a chant the whole protest can get behind. "Spare the rod, spoil the child! The rod is not your penis!"

I found out I could get a rail ticket for £33 return.

That's still a lot for me - but when am I going to get this opportunity again?

Have fun. Wish I could be there, but unfortunately a trip to London is waaaay out of my price range.
